HOUSTON, Jan. 15, 2018 — Northern Offshore announces it has taken delivery of the first of four (4) new jackups constructed by Shanghai Waigaoqiao Shipbuilding Co., Ltd. (SWS).  The Energy Emerger is a high specification jackup of the Gusto CJ-46 design rated for water depths up to 375 ft.  It is immediately available for contracting and is being offered in various strategically important regions.

Chairman and CEO (Interim) Dr. Yuanhui Sun said, “We are pleased to have taken delivery of the Energy Emerger and I wish to thank our project construction team who worked closely with the shipyard to ensure delivery of a quality built unit. I am confident that the Energy Emerger, operated by our very experienced drilling team, will be able to perform at the highest level for our most demanding of clients.  As the market improves, I believe we will see increasing numbers of contracting opportunities develop for this unit and our other high specification jackups under construction with deliveries over the next two years.  The addition of this first new unit to our rig inventory represents an important milestone in Northern Offshore's strategy to build and operate a next generation fleet of high performance jackups.”

About the Author: Carrie Brunner

Carrie Brunner grew up in a small town in northern New Brunswick. She studied chemistry in college, graduated, and married her husband one month later. They were then blessed with two baby boys within the first four years of marriage. Having babies gave their family a desire to return to the old paths – to nourish their family with traditional, homegrown foods; rid their home of toxic chemicals and petroleum products; and give their boys a chance to know a simple, sustainable way of life. They are currently building a homestead from scratch on two little acres in central Texas. There’s a lot to be done to become somewhat self-sufficient, but they are debt-free and get to spend their days living this simple, good life together with their five young children. Carrie writes mostly on provincial stories.
